    Adobe Flash and 2.1 aren't related. Adobe will have to release this on their own.

    Well, I don't know how soon, but the new Slingbox app is supposed to release this summer. The app is built with Flash, so I guess it's semi safe to assume sometime between when we get the 2.1 update, and summer... :D

    I might be getting a bit nit-picky here, but that statement might not be 100% true. It is possible that Flash 10.1 only works with Android 2.1. At least, that's what many have implied. I won't believe it until I test it, but that's what I've read over and over. That said, Adobe won't release Flash 10.1 for the DROID until the official 2.1 update has been fully released. Make sense?

    The bottom line: We wait. Patience is still a virtue.

    Adobe has "projected" Q2 of 2010 for release. It should be a direct download from the Adobe website when ready, so we won't have to wait for an OTA update for it. And so we wait... :rolleyes:

    I remember them saying Q1 during Q4 2009. Watch, in Q2 they're going to "project" that it'll be out in Q3. :(

    I think I am one of the few that couldn't care less about Flash inclusion. So many more important things - like saving apps to SD card.

    I am a developer, and we refuse to develop in Flash. Not a single site I use or visit is poor because I do not have Flash. As a matter of fact, I use browser plugins that turn off Flash content and I can click it to enable the Flash piece IF I even need it. Why? As 99% of the time it is an ad banner or some worthless content I do not even need.

    Of the hundreds upon hundreds of sites I visit I never, ever loose out by having Flash turned off. I would never miss it if it never came out on the Droid. It is fun now and then, but for real productivity and sites of value, Flash has minimal real true usage IMHO... unless you want banners and ads as IMHO, making a fully Flash site or navi area that is Flash driven is a poor usability idea.

    Not going to happen unfortunately. Hulu blocks mobile devices and consoles (like the PS3)...

    Even if it is blocked, if we were to use dolphin and have our user agent set to desktop would it work?

    Not sure exactly how blocking mobile works, but sites that always direct you to a mobile site will give you the normal site when this is set to desktop, so maybe it will work?

    Once we have flash, what if we don't watch through hulu? If I just go to abc.com, for instance, then I could watch episodes?

    Unless they find a clever way to block us, it should be A-O-K!

    So after that article, this is my best guess...

    Devs get Froyo at Google IO on the dev Droids and N1s that google gave out. Said devs will leak it to the market, and we will have 2.2 (w/flash 10.1) shortly after (hopefully May). and the masses will get Froyo/Flash in June...

    Works for me :)
